If you are over 40 (anywhere in the world), have peri-menopausal or menopausal symptoms, or even out the other side of menopause (or early menopause), this Quest is for you! You’ll get knowledge, tools and the support you need on your journey to see results, feel better and embed diet & lifestyle habits during & after their menopause journey.
In order to set yourself up for positive long-term change, it is important to look at setting realistic goals. We’ll look at framing your aspirations using the SMART goal technique so as you know exactly what you’re doing. How often and how you are going to measure your success.
Many women suffer with sleep deprivation during menopause, leading to a whole host of health issues. Often we don’t realise how important sleep is for long-lasting weight loss and good health. Gillian will help you understand sleep & break the cycle of sleepless nights to help you lose weight and stay healthy.
Let’s take a close look at the nutrient rich foods needed for your menopause transition. We’ll also look at healthy portions and how to read food labels. Feel good, energy boosting meal & snack recipe inspiration, as well as shopping lists and much more included.
Redefine your relationship with food to complement and enhance this stage of your life. We’ll take a look at the science behind food cravings and put in place proven strategies to get on top of cravings. If you’ve struggled with your weight for many years, you’ll have the opportunity to ditch that old ‘diet baggage’ and take a fresh approach to thinking about weight loss.
When you’re dehydrated everything suffers – from a sluggish bowel to low energy levels, poor concentration and mood. During this level on hydration, you’ll learn tips and tricks on keeping your body hydrated, even if you think you’re the worst water drinker out there!
You may not have realised the link between your pesky gut symptoms and menopause. But if your digestion is not working right, your menopausal symptoms are going to be worse. As you transition menopause, find out how lower levels of oestrogen affect your gut health. Great resources included on helping relieve constipation, bloating & other gut symptoms.
As oestrogen levels decrease women can lose as much as 20% of their bone density five to seven years after menopause. We need to think about going through menopause with sufficient bone density to minimise the subsequent losses. Learn about the important nutrients for bone health as well as the culprits that negatively affect bone health.
Your risk of developing heart disease increases through the menopause transition but it’s all preventable and manageable, so the sooner you start the better. Learn about how hormonal fluctuations are tied into heart issues and even better, learn the best dietary approach to take for heart health.
Every part of your body benefits from being more active during menopause and can help offset menopausal symptoms. Gillian will show you how to move more to increase your energy levels, improve your mood and if you’re looking to lose weight then we can look at that too, using simple, everyday techniques and easy exercise routines.
This is where we will review your progress and reflect on things that have gone well or even not so well. It’s where you get a chance to see what you need to work on into the future, what your priorities are. We’ll look at framing your mindset and keeping you on track going forward.
You get access to an online learning portal and during My Menopause Quest, you gain knowledge through ‘Missions’ which include videos, challenges and you move through the ‘Levels’ tracking your progress as you go, all whilst developing positive ‘Habits’.

Registered Dietitian Gillian McConnell has developed this new online interactive programme called My Menopause Quest as she started to see a huge increase in the number of women coming to see her in clinic for perimenopause and menopause nutrition advice. Gillian found that women were crying out to feel better physically, mentally and hormonally. As a response to this, she designed an interactive online programme that will educate, inform and motivate women to feel better and change habits for good.
I know that it’s easy to put off starting another health and wellness programme…but My Menopause Quest is different…You’re making your health a priority now, for your future. You’re re-educating yourself now and changing those bad habits now to feel new again.
You Can Do This! Even if you feel you have poor motivation, even if you’ve failed in the past, this course uses simple strategies that are long lasting and achievable. If you don’t have time to commit – really you do!! Because my course changes habits with the most effective use of your time possible.
“I cannot wait to guide you through this next 12 weeks. Helping women through menopause is my mission! You deserve to look and feel fantastic!” – Gillian McConnell, Registered Dietitian and Founder of the My Menopause Quest programme.
